Just a toy

 

Instead of buying ink refills, I am going to look for a "slate" at a toy store, like I had as a little kid.

Works as advertised. Can accurately replicate your drawing and writing and then save as a note or copy to a document. Good value

5 stars if it worked in another actual application instead of requiring copy and paste. Uses its own "Notetaker" software to capture and edit the drawing, then user copies and pastes into application. Not any great advantage to just scanning the paper...

So Fast So Good

 

This is unfair to give 1 Egg to this product. I tried Penepower Tooya Pro ( $ 130 product) before this item is better. I installed to Windows 7 64 bit version without any problem. First install program & driver CD, reboot your PC, connect hardware to...

Used this gadget to send email, you can draw graphic or write any kind language you want & use mobile digital scribe software to send email. Fast & convenience

clamp is too tie and not easy insert the paper

Fun Toy

 

I knew what it was when I bought it and I also got it on sale and figured what the heck, I spen that much on coffee on a bad day so give it a go with the intention of passing it to kids if I did not like it. I think if I were to buy something similar...

Does what it says. Worked right out of the box. Drivers installed on win7 without disc. Used additional program for pen without hassle. Slight lag on a lsower computer between pen movement and data transfer on screen. Installed it on another computer...

Drawing area somewhat limited. Not liking the receiver being attached to page as it gets in the way (for me anyway). Gave this item to one of my many granddaughter's (age 4) and she loves it. For me it should be classed as a toy

It Works

 

For the price it's not bad. There are better solutions out there with more finite control. If you just need it for diagrams it's great.

The device draws diagrams great. It's inexpensive

The MobileDigitalScribe software is clunky. It puts a big yellow notepad on the screen. The "OCR" software is really bad and no integration to the MobileDigitalScribe software. The software will not read my handwriting even when I go slowly. There are...

Awesome Product

 

other than that one con I think this thing is well worth the money.

This really makes for a very nice gift to that person that you want to get a tablet for but just dont have the money for that one that does all that great stuff. well this item is the one for you. it writes as well as you can draw with it. which is my...

sometimes doesnt always know where the pen is on the paper but more often than not it does

Good one

 

Wished it could write on any document. For example, I can get a pdf and sign it on with this but I realize it may not be possible. Although I can save my signature as jpeg and use it in any document I want to..

Very good. Easy to take notes

None

Does what it says it will do

 

Does what it is supposed to do. Even works without actaully writing. before i took the little gel cover off the ink i drew with it to see what it would do without actually drawing. Worked fine. This means that it will work fine for drawing on the...

None that i found yet

Great Product for the price

 

Overall, this product works exactly as advertised. It would be nice to be able to select a tablet size for the mouse mode so that the mouse motion copied exactly what you drew, but it's still a great deal for the price.

This device works very well. While in note mode it copies what you write almost exactly, you don't even have to look at the screen

The maximum size paper you can use is something like 8 1/2 by 14. This isn't a big deal when using it to write notes but it's kind of annoying in mouse mode, because it scales the dimensions of the paper to the screen, making it hard to use with...

Awesome Little Device

 

I should have ordered two while they were on sale.

Works perfectly with Windows 7 and Microsoft OneNote 2007 for taking notes in class. Works well as a mouse

In mouse mode it can miss a click here and there and it is all but impossible to right-click. (Although I didn't but this to use as a mouse)
